We enjoyed the rustic atmosphere while enjoying dinner at Tahoe Joe's. My 9 oz steak was good and cooked as requested. The rice with vegs & pasta was good, as were the green beans, the baby greens salad, and the dinner roll. Two in our group who ordered the prime rib both thought it lacked flavor. The shrimp and ribs... More

This was second visit in 2 days. Both times really good food. Appetiser was calamari - extremely tasty and prime rib couldn't be faulted. Cheesecake was excellent too. Would recommend it!

We go here because we know the steaks are good. Not to fond of the ceasar salad because its a little to fishy for me. But most other options are delicious.

Although the prices of the food may seem a bit pricey, the quality that comes with each meal is delightful. The restaurant is located in a good location as there are numerous things to do before (or afterwards). The staff members are helpful and kind and the place is nice and clean. Out of all of my trips to this... More

Especially during the lunch and happy hour times, this place is a great bargain for the quality of food. They are always offering specials on-line, and if you join their mailing group, you get a lot of fantastic offers ( free apps, desserts etc.). If you crave a great steak, I have never been disappointed with the rib-eye and most... More

Not too bad, we had to send 2 steaks back because they weren't cooked to the proper temperature. The apps were general "run of the mill" steakhouse apps. We went a second time and they did a much better job with the food, but both times I've been there the service was excellent.

Very popular steakhouse. At first i was turned off as we cued for a long time to get a table. It was very noisy with everybody talking over the other. We were finally led to our table, and we proceeded to order, and I was overwhelmed at the prices! There was one thing on the menu that was within my... More
